Notes/Commercial Description:
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices on the nose. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate and fig fruits diving into a semi-dry finish of toast and biscuit.

Appearance- nice, dark stout-like brew. Decent head and lacing.
Smell - roasted malts, a hint of the graham cracker, hence the name.
Taste - robust porter, some hint of graham cracker, but nothing that screams "name this graham cracker porter".
Feel - nit picking a bit, but as you continue to drink the beer seems a bit flat.
Overall - pricey, but expected. Admittedly, I'm not much of a porter drinker until Fall/Winter, so the timing of this review may be skewed.

Poursd dark brown with a khaki head. Aroma is rich with just a touch of some roast; milky, chocolate (maybe of the white variety), a little vanilla, some cinnamon, a little roasted barley.. Decent aroma but the graham cracker didn't quite come together from it, it did in the flavor though. Flavor really was quite unique. A little roasted barley underscoring things but mostly sweet graham cracker flavors dominate: chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow, cinnamon, and cracker. A creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, I thought this was a well executed beer. I did find it got a touch cloying after a while though, so best (for me) enjoyed in small doses.

On tap at Fire on the Mountain, $4 a pint. Dark, dark brown but not quite black. Aroma is sort of like a graham cracker with a hint of honey and malts coming together, was ok. Flavor was something different than the aroma, a bit astringent with some maltiness but not great. I can't believe this won a medal at GABF because the pint I had was unremarkable. Maybe these guys are inconsistent?
